groups, such as the global climate coalition, information council for the environment, heartland institute, annapolis center, and cooler heads coalition are created or enlisted to propagate this message of doubt. deniers question the motives and engage in harassment of the real credentialed climate scientists. well, for the record, there has been scientific debate regarding climate change. ideas have been tested, theories have been ventured, and the evidence keeps coming back to the same conclusion: increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from human-related sources is strengthening the greenhouse effect, adding to recent warming, and acidifying the oceans. actually, the evidence coming in tends to confirm the worst and most dangerous projections. mr. president, may i interrupt my remarks and ask unanimous consent that morning business be extended until 2:00 p.m. with senators permitted to speak therein for up to ten minutes each. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. whitehousemr. whitehouse: ak unanimous consent that that exchange be moved to the beginning or the end

are not in a position to do things that we otherwise would be in a position to do in terms of shaping the environment to prevent war. so in my view, america's fiscal picture increases the risk of conflict around the globe. maybe not always involving the u.s., but certainly the risks are increasing globally based on our fiscal picture. the fifth point i would want to make is that the budget deal requires us to deal with a full deck of cards. and those people who keep wanting to take things off the table, in my view, are not being rational in terms of addition and subtraction. and when i say a full deck of cards, that includes defense participating in deficit reduction. this cannot be in the case of defense a sledgehammer approach. it's going to take a long runway dealing with these issues over time to give the defense department, and they can make, in my view, very significant changes in the budget, but do it in a way that does not damage our security. doing it abruptly as the fiscal cliff does or in a very compressed time frame is not only inefficient, i think it endangers our security and our risk.

throughout that whole period. women have performed extremely well in all of those environments, so i think even within our own country there's plenty of evidence suggesting that women are very capable of handling these jobs. >> you know, the military's official policy towards service women goes back to 1994. that's when this rule was put in place. why do you think it hasn't been looked at? what more needs to be done? >> well, you know, for a number of years there we weren't really actively at war so people weren't really looking at it and while we were at war people were concerned about fighting the fight and getting the job done, but personally i'm a little surprised that since we have been at war for ten years people haven't looked more closely at this and haven't looked at the reality of that's going on on the ground in iraq and afghanistan and how they have been making more steps to move us away. i think we're head there had now, better late than never, i suppose, and need to see this happen here soon. >> getting ready for the segment, contacted the department of defence to get their c
